We have moved many times through the military, and though we are now civilian, Gentle Giant gave us the best experience we've ever had from a moving company. Their packing was by far the best we've ever had, they were legitimately kind, and their moving was fast, efficient, and professional. All for an excellent price. Thank you to Gentle Giant movers for all your help.

We used gentle giant to move interstate. Right from Peter who attended my initial phone call, everyone involved in the process were super professional, swift and very accommodating. The whole process was hassle free and quick! Dennis and his crew did a great job of packing, moving and unloading! 5 stars to each person involved in the process & I will surely consider gentle giant for future needs!!

Gentle Giant recently moved my 5 bedroom house to our new house 30 minutes away. They arrived a few minutes early and were finished by 4pm. They were easy to work with, polite and incredibly efficient. I would recommend them to anyone looking to move.

I have used Gentle Giant several times in the past few years and they never disappoint! They are helpful and flexible with scheduling, we needed additional time and they were able to send the same crew back the next day so we could quickly finish the job. Having different groups come out on different occasions showed that the work ethic and attention to detail is something GG values and does not overlook when training/hiring. Will not go anywhere else!!

We've now used Gentle Giant for two moves and cannot recommend them highly enough. The booking process is professional and thorough, and all costs are highlighted upfront. The movers themselves are excellent - they are all extremely friendly, courteous, and careful. None of our items were damaged in transit (including red wine glasses that I wrapped very poorly!), and we appreciated how they were willing to go the extra mile to make sure every box/item was in exactly the place we wanted it. Both times the teams have been extremely efficient and worked hard to finish the move so that we fell on the lower end of the estimated time budget - no wasted time idling or taking breaks. We tell everyone who is moving to use Gentle Giant - they're the best!

Even though I submitted a review shortly after the move, I am happy to do it again. This is the BEST moving company I have ever used--and I have made many moves throughout the country. Everything was wrapped securely and handled with the utmost care. The group of three worked smoothly and efficiently. Their senior of the three showed real team-building skill in keeping up team spirit and coordination. I would heartily recommend Gentle Giant to anyone planning a safe, efficient, and reasonably-priced move.

Our heartfelt thanks to Gentle Giant and their amazing teams. They were head and shoulders above the many moving/packing companies we have worked with in the past: they were the most on time (even EARLY!), super-polite, most professional, and THOUGHTFUL movers we have ever worked with!Our special thanks to Dennis Moore who was there on both days (packing day and moving day) and kept track of so many little things to make the move easier on us. The way he made sure things were packed made unpacking and settling in so much easier. Seriously, that has NEVER happened before. On moving day, Riley Chapman and Dennis Moore made sure everything went very smoothly. No damage to either property or to any of our goods. Riley and Dennis, while walking past with boxes, would smile at us and ask how WE were doing. Can you imagine that!Communication with the office was great too, from Elizabeth to Dominic to Amandalyn. They were the most responsive office team of any movers we have worked with. And the final bill came in within budget.These are just nice people, doing a great job. We need more businesses like this one.THANK YOU!!!

Gentle Giant exceeded every expectation we had. They did a great job in every aspect of our move, from helping us pack dishes and other fragile items to moving larger furniture items, such as our armoire. Every one of our belongings was moved with care, and the team was great to work with. We couldn't be more impressed with Gentle Giant!

All six were ery hardworking men, who put their thoughtful heads together to move efficiently. It was not an easy move, involved working with a crane, removing window frames and lowering heavy antiques, which would not go down the stairs, down three flights safely. Nothing was broken or scratched. Would definitely recommend them. You get an hour's value and they do just charge for the hours, as stated.

5 Star Review. From the first day we met Franz to the last day with Scott, Matt, Dennis, Chris, Steve, Paulo and Richard, the move went smoothly. Dominic and Colm were so helpful over the phone. There were a few times, the crew went out of their way to accommodate our changes in plan. Everyone was neat, pleasant and helpful during such a stressful time. They all stayed calm, cool and collected! The estimate was right on. Crew arrived right on time. All our belongings going to the house arrived safely. The rest to storage and perfectly wrapped! Thank y'all for pleasant experience. I will highly recommend Gentle Giants to friends, neighbors and even strangers! Thank you, John and Nancy Quatromoni.

We recently used Gentile Giants for our move. I cannot say enough positive things. I was very concerned as we were moving several antique pieces. Jeffrey and Mike were very professional wrapping all the pieces and transporting them with ease. Beyond the great job with the furniture.

Awesome company! I was on a very tight timeline and GG had me packed and moved in over the course of two days; the actual move took less than 12 hours. Mantas, John, and Tyler were all very professional and treated my goods with utmost care. I am a military spouse and have moved eight times over the last eighteen years. This was by far, the easiest move I have experienced.

We had hired Gentle Giant for a second time this week in order to facilitate a family member's move. Our first experience was excellent to say the least, and this move was no different. The lead-up to the move as to clarity, preparation and professionalism was first class. This company executes on its promises. The movers were terrific: courteous, careful and efficient--simply really good people. We would recommend Gentle Giant to anyone! Ron Mondillo

What can I add to all the positive reviews Gentle Giant has received, except to say that they are all true.The booking process with their Moving Consultants could not have been easier, nor could they have been any more accommodating. I had an early morning closing on my house and Carmen was able to get me on the schedule for that afternoon. The movers were of course right on time, and when there was an issue with the 3rd member of the crew, GG arranged for another 2-man crew to join in the move and I was moved in and ready to sleep in my new home in no time at all.So go ahead, take a look at the other moving services out there, but if you want a hassle free, smooth move... look no further.

I needed help unloading a UPack storage unit into a rental truck. Green Giant was very helpful on the phone, and accomodating on schedule. The team they assigned got delayed at the previous job, but a second team was assigned and arrived in the middle of the window time. Great guys, quick and efficient.

The worst moving company in Rhode Island. Sure, they are fast but they are too fast and they broke a number of things and they put things back together incorrectly. Then they have the audacity to state that it's my problem and I should deal with it. I did and I got myself a lawyer. They refunded me the amount I paid and compensated me for some of the items damaged. It took months but it was worth the wait. I am now "blacklisted" with them.Avoid at all costs. They hire ex-cons and people who look "threatening".

My wife and I have moved three times within the past five years. For each of these moves, we contracted with Gentle Giant. We have had outstanding experience with them for every one of our moves. They're super professional, friendly and most of all take excellent care of your property. Not once have we had any damage of our furniture or homes. Gentle Giant is worth every penny. If you care about keeping your property safe and in one piece, spend the money contracting with Gentle Giant!A big shout out to Whitney Miller, our GG Move Coordinator and the men who were flawless, Jeffrey Eiland, Philip Tessier, Tyler Dunn and Billy Costello! Thank you all for your hard work.Very Satisfied Customer,Ken

This was the second time that we used Gentle Giant to move our office space. We were pleased once again for the experience that we received. Both times they moved us in less time that was quoted and saved us money both times. Their staff is very friendly and truly care about the service they are giving you. They make sure your items are protected during the move and make every effort to place your items exactly where you want them. They even do a walk through at the end to make sure you are happy with everything is and to make sure they have moved everything that has been requested. During this move we had Jeffrey Eiland, Casey Dolan and Cory Ruzzo. They were very professional and truly worked their hardest to get everything moved in a timely manner.We were supposed to have 4 men but they finished up a job before us early so they were able to come to use site early. Despite being short one guy they finished the job early and saved the company money. I would recommend Gentle Giant to anyone and would definitely use them again in the future.

PORTSMOUTH, RI,

PROVIDENCE, RI Move

You definitely have gained a lifelong fan based on my moving experience, but it was difficult to call Gentle Giant. I got placed on hold multiple times per call and was often forwarded to people who were on vacation past my move. Everyone I spoke to was nice and helpful, it was just hard as a customer to get in touch with the right person, and that is why it isn’t a 15 but a 12 for question 3. Nonetheless I wasn’t sure if a pro mover was for me, but Gentle Giant definitely proved to me how important it is to invest in professional moving services. You pay for your peace of mind. My movers handled multiple problems on the spot (doorways, too large of a couch) and went over and beyond (they moved my UPS shipment inside, unwarranted! What???!) and so I am above and beyond pleased with my move with GG. Worth every cent and more!


PROVIDENCE, RI,

Newport, RI Move

I was looking to move some pieces of heavy furniture within the house , garage , basement, etc. I had called a few other companies , and, per usual, got no returns. I called Gentle Giant based on some reviews I had read. To my surprise, a person actually answered the phone, and the person was extremely competent. GG was not the least expensive, but they were the fastest in scheduling, at MY convenience. They showed up on time, with a heads up call before arriving. The crew was professional, polite, clean and masked. They said hello, and introduced themselves. They quickly figured the logistics, and were completed in record time with no damage, no fuss. They were also cognizant of lighting, door frames, walls, etc. before moving pieces. The signing out process was quick, electronic and no touch.
